DDR4 and DDR5 Support is Available on ASRock Z790 and H770 Motherboards
Read Time:2 Minute, 2 Second

As per a list of new ASRock Z790 and H770 motherboards published by Videocardz, Intel’s Raptor Lake design will support DDR4 and DDR5 ram standards.

The list, which is not full, includes four DDR4 variations and 12 Z790 and H770 models that are purportedly under active development. Intel surpasses AMD, whose new AM5 platform and Ryzen 7000 CPUs will only support DDR5, by providing both DDR4 and DDR5.DDR4 and DDR5 Support is Available on ASRock Z790 and H770 Motherboards

With greater core frequencies and twice as many E-cores on each model, Intel’s future Raptor Lake design will be an improvement over the company’s existing 12th Gen Alder Lake architecture.

Although there are still many unknowns around Raptor Lake, sources indicate that boost clocks of 5.8 GHz may be the standard for the new series.

ASRock is reportedly working on 12 new 700 series motherboards, according to information that has leaked. The list includes a Taichi version, nine Z790 boards, the Pro RS, PG Lightning, PG Riptide, and C versions. Three H770 boards are also offered, featuring two PG Lightning models and a Steel Legend version.

The Z790-C, Z790 PG Lightning, Z790M PG Lighting (micro-ATX), as well as H770 PG Lighting are 4 of the twelve motherboards mentioned that are DDR4-specific variations.

Customers of Raptor Lake will then have a choice between DDR5 and DDR4, the latter of which is still significantly less expensive.

From Intel’s standpoint, it makes great sense to enable DDR4 on Raptor Lake. Raptor Lake and Alder Lake were first verified to share a single socket and to be backward and forwards compatible with chipsets from the 600-series and 700-series. Because Alder Lake also handles both memory standards, this alone nearly demands DDR4 support for Raptor Lake.

However, the battle with AMD will benefit even more from this because AMD has said that its forthcoming AM5 architecture would only accept DDR5.

Raptor Lake could wind up being a considerably more affordable platform to use for both upgrades and new system builds if DDR5 remains much more expensive than DDR4.

However, only time will tell. With the release of its Ryzen 7000 CPUs, AMD anticipates that DDR5 pricing will continue to decline as DDR5 use increases.

Raptor Lake isn’t set to arrive until the third or fourth quarter of this year, but if that’s the case, it would coincide perfectly with the Ryzen 7000’s autumn launch window.
